. meanwhile, a new pew research poll shows romney leading by 4 points. this race is tightening. things are moving, gist like mitt romney. suddenly he loves covering people with pre-existing conditions and suddenly mr. romney is ignoring the fact that his tax plan is a give away to the rich. the only problem, that's not the mr. romney who's running for president and this weekend newt gingrich, one of his top surrogates let the cat out of the bag. >> standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is what mitt romney said. number one, i said today we're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20%, including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, mitt romney, had a problem with being dishonest and the primary of my question is, was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think it's clear he changed. >> clearly he's changed. another romney surrogate even admitted it. >> that's all you're seeing here. it's very typical. we we strong conservatives understand that. it's campaign strategy. >> it's typical. just campaign strategy. that's all you're seeing h

on personal traits president obama still leads romney, even in polls relief after the debay. president obama leads 44 to 39. on who takes a more moderate position? obama leads 49 to 39. on who connects with ordinary americans, 59 to 39. how does mitt romney turn his numbers around? >> apparently by being mitt. listen, i have a lot of simply and my heart goes on the to the -- it's hard to watch someone be different on the campaign trail. when my father was running for senate six years ago, they sat undouse and told us to sit down and mind our own business and your job is just to be a listening ear, not to get the candidate all twisted about poll numbers, but they know they don't reflect the person that they know well. i think at this point, though the reason we're seeing this is this would not have leaked if someone didn't want it out there is this is starting to become a blame game. they're deciding whether or not this will get tagged on the consultants who have been there since the very beginning, the staff since the beginning, or if they can say, listen the family interven

, boy. >> more campaign news in a new poll found only 47% of voters find mitt romney to be trustworthy. then romney is like, i hope it's not the same 47% that i don't care about. >>> we're back with joe biden's big night setting the social media on fire. facebook claims that biden got 36% more mentions than ryan. and check out the top three rise in google searches. the top search was biden. next was the word focornflating and then the word malarkey. >> it's never been done before. >> it's been done a couple times. >> jack kennedy lowered -- >> oh, now you're jack kennedy? >> you're no jack kennedy moment, lloyd benson would be proud. meantime, twitter was ablazed with celebrity involvement. bill maher wrote, hello, 911, there's an old child beating on my tv. and post debate results just in. ryan now at 6% body fat, 94% water. the "politicsnation" facebook crowd was plugged in, too. marilynn said, thank god for joe's crisp vision he painted on behalf of the middle class. janet says her new favorite word is malarkey and roger was happy. the good old 47 was brought back to lif

tomorrow we will up it yet again. >>> welcome back. the presidential race is tied. a new gallup poll today shows it's exactly even, with president obama and mitt romney tied at 48%. just minutes ago the president talked about the first debate. >> governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night but i think what's important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about hasn't changed. governor romney went to a lot of trouble to try to hide what his positions are. if you have a bad game, you move on to the next one and it makes you that much more determined. the difference between this and sports is that the stakes are so high. >> we knew this race would be close. the question is, how will we respond? joining me now is dick, chairman of the south carolina democratic party, and tan den, president of the americans for progress. thank you both for being here. >> thank you. >> nira, today you cautioned obama supporters to stop freaking out. so where do you see things now moving forward? >> you know, i actually thin

, look at the polls. is that the reason you see the president leading romney among women in virginia, he's 16 points up over romney, the president is. he's 12 points up in ohio, 13 points in florida, ten points in wisconsin, six points in colorado among women voters in those key swing states? >> yes. it's not only rape that we're talking about. contraception is a huge issue. it's changed society in many ways. so women's access to contraception is the number one factor and allows us to go from second class status to first-class status. it allows us to have autonomy over our bodies and over our decision as far as our career path and family planning. >> laura bassett and zelina, thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >>> coming up, moderate mitt. meet 2009 mitt. a new tape surfaces with him praising glenn beck. but the questions don't stop there. you're watching "politicsnation" as we get ready for a big night here on the place for politics. msnbc. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. ones we've all made. about marriage. children. money. about tomorrow.

the vote. on top of that, for an all-time high, a couple polls show an all-time high of voters who say it's a certain set of values. that's new. we didn't used to have that. when ryan and romney say, well, this is what i believe in is tho so this is going to be the law, ryan's position that we've talked about before is to the very far extreme of where the republicans are. >> now, does that come across clearly, dana, how extreme their position is? i mean, we're talking about not al debate as you would have a decade ago about pro life, pro choice. we're talking about ultrasound invasions. >> sure. >> we're talking about people redefining rape, legitimate rape, forceable rape. this is some extreme stuff we're talking about. >> reverend, that's also why you saw the pause there. it wasn't just a debate between ohio biden and paul ryan. there's a debate between paul ryan and mitt romney. and you can see him saying, am i answering for romney in 2012 or for paul ryan in 2016 when he hopes to be running for president? he has a very different position. he was like, okay, i'll go with the par

countering mitt romney, not just standinging there, they know that he's on their side. >> well, a lot of people want to see them fight because according to the national polls, the race is tight. it's also tight in key battleground state. a new ppp poll out today shows obama with a five-point lead in ohio but narrowly losing in florida and north carolina. swing state polls last week showed obama ahead by three points in wisconsin, by seven in michigan, but also losing to come ree in colorado and virginia. i mean, what do you make of the state of the race right now, bob? >> well, i think the whole variety of polls all over the place, i think the race has tightened since the first debate. i think you're right. the fighting barack obama has to show up tomorrow. by the way, it doesn't have to be obnoxious. when he gets asked a question by someone in the audience, stand up and say, look, there's a real difference between what i would do and what governor romney would do and outline that difference and show how he's going to stand up and fight for the middle class. i think the structure of this
